Conversations on the Shore

Our first Conversations on the Shore was during the summer of 2016. We hosted the community lead discussion in our peaceful and serene garden to discuss the current state of South Shore.  During the summer 2016, Chicago experienced rates of gun and gang related violence last seen in Chicago in early 1990’s.
